    I worked at SSMU as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The casual and friendly atmosphere made it a lot of fun working at SSMU. I learned a lot working here. It is a great place to start if you are looking to gain that first job as a student.

    Cons

    The pay is relatively low. Some processes at SSMU are not well established or enforced, so things could at times seem unorganized.

    I have been working at SSMU part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Working at SSMU is an enjoyable experience. The culture of the office is laid back, and hours--depending on your position--never get in the way of school.

    Cons

    The current (or expected) salary freeze will mean less opportunities for students looking for part-time work. Though the laid back style of the office is a pro for most people, some "serious" employees might dislike the actions of certain employees who are, after all, students.

    I have been working at SSMU

    Pros

    it is a great place with a lot of room for advancements. fun people to work with. overall good experience

    Cons

    Difficult to make advancements. A lot of favorites and not a lot of fair promotions. Not based on skill at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think that they need to have higher compensation which will lead to employees wanting to work there for a long time
